Jack If you haven't installed 10.4 I would suggest not doing so.  If you have 
it won't cause problems.

What I have found from doing that is that the only problem hat seems to occur 
is that there is no reliable way to uninstall 10.4 if you have 10.5 release 
installed.

Installing 10.4 with just the beta should not be a problem but 10.5 and 10.4 on 
the same system I think present a problem in that a manual uninstall of 10.4 
will probably be in order if you should ever want to remove it.
